    About AMS Panels: Traditional style wool (and synthetic) flocked panels can bunch up, causing hot spots and uneven pressure. As time goes by, this panel requires constant adjustments and reflocking because of shifting experienced during use. The AMS system has been designed to allow a perfect union between horse and rider. This system eliminates hot spots by dispersing any pressure variances of the flocking within the panels, thanks to the exclusive pressure stabilizing neoprene layer. The neoprene layer provides a soft, consistent layer to support the rider's weight on the back of the horse. This layer will absorb impacts and distribute pressure evenly for maximum comfort and freedom of movement for your horse. Saddles with AMS panels can be reflocked and fitted to your horse, just like traditional wool flocked panels.

    About XCH: The Pessoa XCH System allows you to fit your saddle to a variety of horses through changeable gullet plates. Any rider can change the width of the tree using any of the interchangeable gullet plates and a's that simple. The XCH system does not change the integrity or look of the saddle. A saddle with a medium gullet plate installed will fit and look just like a medium fixed tree saddle. The strength is the same, the feel is the same and, like all Pessoa Trees, the warranty is the same 100 years. Buy one saddle that will fit all of your horses from Narrow to XWide and still get all of the quality and attention to detail that you deserve.

    About Pessoa Trees: Classical riders like Nelson Pessoa know exactly where the rider's weight should fall on the horse's back. Hardly a new revelation, but it was Nelson who first designed a tree that would allow the saddle to help the rider find that position. Like coming back home again, every Pessoa saddle encourages riders to find their perfect sweet spot of balance. The tree is the heart of the saddle, and Pessoa's flexible carbon fiber spring tree brings a new dimension of closeness with your horse. Wooden trees have very little lateral flexion and are prone to breaking. Plastic trees typically have no suspension and can hurt the horse's back. Carbon fiber is very lightweight, but incredibly strong and is molded with polymers specially designed by Dupont to provide flexibility without losing resistance. Pessoa is so confident in the strength and integrity of their trees that they warranty them for 100 years.
